DEDICATION 2007 




Joseph G. Skehan, Jr. 



Joseph G. Skehan, Jr. was born on August 20, 1942 in Lowell, Mass. He graduated 
from the Lowell High School and then went to work for the Lowell Sun until 1985. 
During this time at the Sun he enjoyed all the people he worked with. After leaving 
the Sun, he moved to Ossipee to help start the Skehan Home Center with his family. 
He worked as a Salesman, which he enjoyed very much. Joe met and married Kellie 
(Hodge), his wife of twenty years, Joe always made time for his wife and children, 
Kyle, Nichole, and Erin. He enjoyed attending the games and events after school. 
He enjoyed and fondly remembered all the Softball games and the bowling nights 
with his family. Joe was a big fan of the Boston Red Sox and the New England 
Patriots. 

Joe served three terms as Selectman for the Town; he also served as the Selectmen's 
representative to the Budget Committee. Joe loved the Town of Ossipee and they 
loved him. He was famous for riding through the Town and stopping by and talking 
to the citizens. His caring and concern for this Town will always be remembered. 

Joe was very instrumental in many of the projects that have been completed 
throughout the Town including but not limited to: the landfill closure, bridge 
repairs, road reconstruction, the appearance of the front of Town Hall, the upgrades 
in the Town Hall, and the Annie Nichols Rd., just to name a few. 

Thank you Joe for helping make Ossipee a great place to live. 



"EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR 2006" 




Tracy Cragin 

The Ossipee "Employee of the Year" for the year 2006 is bestowed upon 
Tracy Cragin with great pride and appreciation. 

Tracy has been working in the Tax Collector/Town Clerk's office for the past 
fifteen years. 

Tracy has proven herself to be dependable, cooperative, and self-sufficient. 
She is valuable not only to the Tax CollectorATown Clerk's office, but also to all 
departments within the Town. Tracy is very knowledgeable and experienced in 
many areas, and is willing to share her knowledge and experience with whoever 
needs it. Tracy has a great personality and lots of self-confidence to carry out any 
task that she has been given. 

Tracy's computer knowledge is a great asset to all departments. 

The job Tracy has done within the Tax Collector/Town Clerk's office is 
outstanding. She is always willing to go the extra mile to help a co-worker or 
customer in need. 

Tracy is certainly an example of what an Employee of the Year should be. 

We are very proud and honored to have Tracy as part of our Town. 

It is with great pride and pleasure that we, the Board of Selectmen, Town 
Employees, and our Townspeople honor Tracy Cragin with the award of "Employee 
of the Year for 2006".

"2007 CITIZEN OF THE YEAR" 
TOWN OF OSSIPEE 

Elizabeth "Betsy" Rouner 

Elizabeth "Betsy" Rouner has been chosen to receive the 2007 Citizen of the Year 
Award for the Town of Ossipee. This annual presentation is based on volunteer 
service to the community, and unselfish acts of benevolence toward its residents. 

Deserving though she is, Betsy Rouner would never expect to be presented this 
award - or any other. Consider yourself fortunate if you have someone in your life 
who affects you in some positive way but genuinely expects nothing in return. It is 
for this that she has been chosen the 2007 "Citizen of the Year" for the Town of 
Ossipee. 

Betsy's longest and perhaps greatest gift to seniors in the area is her volunteer 
delivery of meals-on-wheels from the Ossipee Concerned Citizens, Inc. Elderly 
Nutrition Program - a role she has fulfilled each week for nearly twenty-eight years. 
She uses her own vehicle with her own fuel in every season. She has traveled 
thousands of miles in every condition and has made the lives of hundreds of seniors 
healthier and happier. 

A retired English teacher, Betsy has lived her life as an educator, and as one who has 
never stopped learning within a world quickly changing. After her retirement, she 
worked in real estate from the mid 1980's to 2001 . 

For many years she has served as a Trustee on the Board of the Ossipee Public 
Library - a position she continues to hold. She is also past Chairperson (2006), and 
was a prime mover in the development of plans and implementation of the latest 
addition to the now multi-functional library. 

People like Betsy Rouner never really retire. One of her greatest qualities is to 
motivate by example. Out of some level of humility, she may be the only one who 
doesn't know it. 

It is with great pride and pleasure that we congratulate Elizabeth "Betsy" Rouner as 
the 2007 Citizen of the Year.

Notes from the Clerk's Office... 

My first year as Town Clerk and Tax Collector has been a very busy year. 
We started with a grant for our Vital Records that Tracy wrote. This required us to 
empty the vault, and go through everything before we could put things back in the 
vault. Then in July we started on the office renovations, which ended up being a 
larger project than was originally thought. As with any old building, renovations can 
take on a new meaning. During the renovations we were able to stay open the 
whole time. 

I have been very fortunate to have Trish and Tracy stay working for this 
office. I believe that the Town and I have greatly benefited from their years of 
experience. Tracy was also the Employee of the Year, which she truly deserves. 

I wish to thank all the people whom I work with for all their help. It has 
truly been a great place to work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kellie J. Skehan 

Town Clerk

TOWN OF OSSIPEE 

TRUSTEES OF TRUST FUNDS 

2007 ANNUAL REPORT 

2007 has not been a great year for the investments of the Trust Funds of our 
town. With many financial institutions offering a reduction in investment 
opportunities, including a drop in interest rates; (due to the economic downturn) the 
Trustees had to maintain a constant follow-up program. Your Trustees, were able to 
stay on top of the changes and even with the drop we were able to derive enough 
interest to add on to every account. 

This increase (though less than last years ) was apparent in all invested 
funds, including the Lyford Merrow Scholarship Fund. This fund, which is only for 
Ossipee Residents, had a good year on income and so the Scholarship amount for 
the 2008-2009 college year will be $24,000. Those parents who have students 
graduating from High School this June and going to college, should have their 
children pick up an application from the High School Guidance Office as soon as 
possible. 

On the following pages you will see the audited breakdown of the Trust 
accounts. We have listed the basic categories of our accounts and their principal 
and interest sums. The report indicates the beginning balance for the year, the 
income and expenditures and the ending balances as of the 31st of December. 

The investment policies of the Trustees of Trust Funds meet the rigid 
requirements of the Charitable Trust Division of the office of the Attorney General 
of New Hampshire. As such we have investment in: CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT, 
MONEY MARKET ACCOUNTS; SAVINGS ACCOUNTS, CHECKING ACCOUNTS 
and THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PUBLIC DEPOSIT INVESTMENT POOL. We utilize our 
local Banks as often as possible, including Laconia Savings Band; Northway Bank, 
and Citizens Bank. 

As Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Trust Funds, a position that I have 
held for 1 4 of the past 1 6 years, it has been a pleasure to search for and select the 
best returns for the Town Capital Reserve and regular Trusts Funds. I am not running 
for re-election and plan on a semi-retirement, having reached the mid-80s'. I will 
continue to assist as requested by your Trustees in whatever capacity they desire, but 
not as a Trustee. I thank the Town for their support and trust over the years. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George F. Lynch, Chairman 

June Loud, Trustee 

Carol M. McConkey, Trustee

OSSIPEE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 
2007 Annual Report 

The Ossipee Economic Development Committee is scheduled to meet on 
the fourth Tuesday of every other month. Meetings are called as needed. We have 
added two new members recently and new members are always welcome. Our 
Mission is to foster organized growth utilizing human and natural resources in a 
responsible way. The OEDC seeks to educate and involve the community in its 
work. 

The OEDC members are involved in projects in the Mount Washington 
Valley Economic Council. OEDC member Donna Sargent is Ossipee's 
representative on the Council. She is a member of the Revolving Loan Fund 
Committee. We encourage residents of Ossipee who would like to start or expand 
a business to apply for a loan. SCORE volunteers are available to help with business 
plans. The Education Committee is working on providing job retraining in high- 
paying technical jobs. The Technology Village is also home to the Granite State 
College and the NH Technical School offering courses to help career advancement. 
Business tax credits are available for any business to buy that would benefit from the 
tax credits. Several businesses in Ossipee have expressed interest in the Business Tax 
Program. 

Members of the Ossipee Economic Development Committee have 
attended programs presented by leaders in the business, government, education and 
financial sectors of our economy. Several have attended conferences and seminars 
to learn more about how to revitalize downtown Center Ossipee. Most of the OEDC 
members were interested in the concept of business revitalization with historic 
preservation while building a feeling of community, so we formed the Ossipee 
Revitalization Group dedicated to attaining Main Street membership. Ossipee is 
now a Main Street Community. The program basically consists of volunteers 
working in structured task-oriented committees to improve the vitality of their 
community. One of the four committees is the Economic Restructuring Committee, 
which is sponsoring the third annual Economic Fair at the end of March that the 
OEDC is pleased to help sponsor. The first two Economic Fairs were a big success. 
Many of the presenters plan to return, and several new features, such as workshop 
sessions, are being added. This year area craftsmen are invited to participate in the 
Economic Expo.

Summer Reading Program 2007: "Reading Road Trip USA/' sponsored by CHILIS 

/NHLA (Children's Librarians/New Hampshire Library Association) 

83 children registered. Total minutes read = 40,380. 

Top Readers: AJ Lavoie-4039 minutes; Zack Lavoie-2740 minutes; Madison Lavoie- 

2716 minutes; Stacey Kelleher-2032 minutes. 

Volunteers: Pat Althoff, Anne Martin-Segrini 

Entertainment: The Little Red Wagon — "Truckin" with the UNH Dance Theater — 

sponsored by the Old hlome Week Committee, the Friends of O.P.L and a grant from 

the Governor Wentworth Art Council. 

Registration for our Summer Reading Programs begins at the library when 
school ends for the summer. For each six-week program, we have story-time and 
crafts each Tuesday and Thursday morning. At the end of this six-week program, the 
children receive certificates, prizes and awards. 

During the summer each child keeps a reading log that includes the title 
of each book read, as well as the number of minutes he/she reads. The children turn 
in these logs to the library. We calculate the total minutes read by each child. One 
hundred minutes is equal to one library dollar to be used in the library store on prize 
day. Each child is limited to $18.00 in play money. Once the child receives his/her 
envelope containing the certificate, awards and play money earned, he/she goes 



42 



into the meeting room to shop in the library store. The store contains a 25-cent table, 
a dollar table, a two-dollar table, a three-dollar section, a five-dollar section, an 
eight-dollar section, and a ten-dollar section. The 25-cent table contains used 
children's books, small candies, stickers, and bookmarks. Most children read 300 
minutes and under. Refreshments, provided by the Friends of the Ossipee Public 
Library, follov^, celebrating the children's accomplishments. 

In 2007, we had maps posted on the meeting room walls, read stories 
pertaining to road trips, vacations, and safe traveling. We planned activities 
pertaining to the theme. Summer scrapbooking was the main "trip." The children 
enjoyed putting together a summer scrapbook. They worked on these scrapbooks 
each week. Some children brought in pictures of themselves doing various summer 
activities. Some wrote sentences and stories for their books. In addition to the scrap 
booking, they were given plastic racing cars; the car wheels have rubber stamps in 
different designs. We used inkpads of many colors, they made a paper car to travel 
along a paper road and mark reading miles (100 minutes read = 1 mile), with an 
eighteen-mile finish line. One week we read about Flat Stanley and had the kids 
make a Flat Stanley or Flat Marion paper doll. One week we arranged for a racecar 
and driver (Maverick Eldridge) to visit the library. He talked about the safety features 
in his car as well as the fireproof clothing he wears when racing. Another week, we 
had an Ossipee fire truck here for the children to see. Fireman Mark Washburn, 
talked with the children and explained that the fire truck transports water in order 
to put out fires. The children enjoyed sitting in the driver's seat of the fire truck, 
raising and lowering it. 




Studies show that it takes six weeks to instill a habit. With this program; we 
hope to instill a love for reading. We ask the children to read, or be read to, for at 
least 20 minutes per day. 

The 2008 Summer Reading Program starts with entertainment at the Town 
Hall. On Tuesday, July 1, 2008, at 10:30 am, we will have WILDLIFE 
ENCOUNTERS: the Northern New England's Traveling Zoo. Everyone is welcome to 
attend. 

The theme for the 2008 Summer Reading Program is "G day for Reading" 
(an Australian expression), sponsored by CHILIS /NHLA.

Lucy Merrow, Natalie Peterson, Nancy Curtiss, David Holt, and the children who 
participated in the Summer Reading Program. 

The Meeting Room is often used to offer educational, historical, civic. 
Scout and cultural programs to the community. The library also continues to sponsor 
a wide variety of programs: 

•AARP volunteers provide tax assistance from February to June. 

•Our book discussion group meets the first Tuesday afternoon of each 
month, at 2:00 pm. 

•Ossipee Garden Club meets the first Thursday afternoon at 1 :00 pm. 

•Quilters group meets the second and fourth Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm. 
The quilters are in the process of making a quilt as a fundraiser for the 
library. 

•Story-time for pre-school children continues to be held on Tuesday 
mornings at 1 0:30 am, and for school-aged children on Tuesday afternoons 
at 3:30 pm. Story-time for babies is held on Friday mornings at 10:30 am. 

•Book delivery and pick-up of books, video, audiotapes and other library 
materials are available for the homebound. The library also stocks large- 
print books and the Reader's Digest magazine for visually impaired 
readers. 

(These programs are open to everyone) 

In December, the library received the "I am Your Child" DVD series, 
produced by Rob Reiner. This series offers parents information about managing day- 
to-day stress, child behavior, development, fitness and nutrition. These DVDs are 



44 



available for checkout. This series was made possible through the New Hampshire 
Children's Trust Fund, the Strengthening Families Project. - 

Improvements to the Library in 2007 included new linoleum in the 
bathrooms and hallway, new shelving, a security system from Lakeside Security and 
a new oil drum (to meet the new fire safety codes). 

Once again, our appreciation and gratitude go to a large group of 
wonderful people who give of themselves, through their time and donations, to 
enrich the lives of others. They make your library what it is today. 

The trustees and library staff wish to thank the citizens of Ossipee for their 
on-going support. We look forward to another successful year of growth and service.

SELECTMEN'S REPORT 
2007 

On February 4, 2008, we lost the Chairman of the Board, Joseph G. Skehan, Jr. 
Joe was a great asset to town affairs and a community leader. He will be greatly 
missed. 

Three new people have been hired to fill vacant positions: Brewster Vittum at 
the Incinerator and Scott Riley and Chris Ouellette at the Highway Department. 
Fred Loud retired after 21 years with the Highway Department. We wish Fred and 
his wife Beverly many happy years in retirement! 

The Town of Ossipee has seen three major projects taking place: 1) the Main 
Street Project with redoing the building on Moultonville Road, 2) the Ossipee 
Conservation Commission and their quest to raise money to purchase property on 
Route 16 (the Window on the Ossipee's site), and 3) the Whittier Covered Bridge 
preservation project. 

Bob Gillette has done a great job in obtaining Federal funding to preserve our 
bridge. ..thank you Bob! 

In the spring of 2007, Mother Nature left her mark on the Town of Ossipee. It 
rained for 3 days - leaving many of our roads washed out, dangerous and in very 
poor condition. Our Highway Department, under the command of Public Works 
Director, Brad Harriman, did a phenomenal job with repairs, working overtime to 
get them passable, then undertaking proper repairs throughout the spring. 

With the help of our Emergency Management Director, Brad Eldridge, along 
with the town office personnel, we were able to recover over $900,000 in FEMA 
funds to offset the cost of repairs from these April rain storms and flood damage. 

The Board of Selectmen would like to say "Thank you!" to all our Town 
employees. You make Ossipee a better place to live.

OSSIPEE MAIN STREET PROGRAM 
2007 Annual Report 




Through the volunteer efforts of a number of citizens and friends of 
Ossipee, Ossipee became a Main Street community in 2005 and an area of the 
Center Ossipee village v^^as identified as the target area in which the program was 
to begin its work. The target area is bounded by the Police Station on Dore Street, 
the Fire Station on Folsom Road, Grant Hill Antiques on Main Street and St. Joseph's 
Church on Moultonville Road. The program, an all volunteer effort, using a four 
point approach endorsed by the New Hampshire Main Street Center (now the CDFA 
Downtown Resource Center) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is run 
by a Board of Directors, four volunteer committees and a part time paid director. 
While the program is partially funded with an appropriation from the Town voted 
on at Town Meeting, the majority of the operational budget (90%) comes from 
contributions from individual residents and friends of Ossipee, local and area 
businesses, and fundraising efforts. 

2007 was a busy year of significant growth made possible through the 
collaborative efforts of Main Street volunteers and their many partners. Volunteers 
working on the various committees, projects and events donated over 3246 hours 
of their time worth $60,927 to Main Street projects this year. Private and public 
property owners reinvested $266,679 to complete 14 property improvement 
projects within the designated Main Street target area. 

Here's what our year looked like: 
January: Volunteers worked with Chefs' Pants Off founder and local business person 
Dave Dube to hold the second annual Chef's Pants Off. Proceeds were donated to 
the park project for benches in memory of veterans who served in all conflicts. The 
Design Committee made a successful application to Plan NH for assistance in 
designing the layout of the park and surrounding streetscape. Design Committee 



47 



volunteers renewed their work with the fire precincts and PSNH to convert 

streetlights to energy saving dark sky compliant fixtures. 

February: Main Street hosted the inaugural Youth Fishing Derby and Frozen Water 

Family Weekend at FHodsdon Shore on Lake Ossipee. A successful grant application 

was submitted to the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for funds to pay for 

Plan NhH design services. 

March: Voters approved funds to begin rehabilitating the building located on the 

park property. The Economic Restructuring Committee held its second economic fair 

and added four workshops to its program line-up. 

April: Art contest is held at Ossipee Central School. Students design duck adoption 

certificates and posters for third annual duck race. Local seniors judge the contest. 

First annual meeting is held and the movie, "Cars" is the theme. 

May: Volunteers cleaned-up the "square" while other volunteers cleaned-up 

recreation areas within town. Inaugural post clean-up lunch was hosted by 

Kingswood Regional hiigh School senior as part of the Close-up Program. Main 

Street hosted a booth at OCC Spring Fling. Duck adoption certificates went on sale. 

New Hampshire Main Street hosted Excellence Awards and local businessperson 

Eric Tinker and board member Jean Hansen won awards. 

June: Volunteers began work on their third award-winning float for the 4th of July 

parade. Local contractors, area businesses, Center Ossipee Fire Department, and 

the Highway Department filled, graded and compacted the park vacant lots in time 

for Old Home Week Activities. Inaugural photography contest was announced with 

entrance fees donated to the Old Home Week Committee. We were awarded a 

technical assistance grant and a consultant with the Downtown Professionals 

worked with the Economic Restructuring Committee to develop a business 

recruitment information packet. 

July: Our parade floats, a demonstration of recycling plastic bottles into fleece and 

a working replica of the grain elevator in Center Ossipee won an award. The third 

annual duck race was hosted and the ducks took a very leisurely swim down the 

Beech River. Volunteers searched for ducks for days while others showed up weeks 

later at the Beech River Mill. Area businesses once again showed their 

overwhelming support and generosity by providing race prizes. A grant application 

was submitted to NHEC Foundation for assistance in rehabilitating the park 

building. 

August: The second annual BBQ in the Park was held. Main Street "cartoon people" 

and volunteers once again supported ValuLand's Customer Appreciation Days and 

sold t-shirts, sweatshirts and heritage ornaments to raise funds for the program. With 

the Highway Safety Committee, a public information meeting was held about the 

location of sidewalks and crosswalks. The CDFA Downtown Resource Center 

visited Ossipee and announced a restructuring as well as a new fee schedule for 

services and technical assistance. Large dead trees overhanging the park building 

were taken down. 

September: Preparation began in earnest for the Plan NH design team visit to the 

target area in October. Metal roof was replaced and partially reframed. We hosted 

a booth at OCC Harvest Fair. Kranky Franky hosted Bike Day to benefit Main Street 

program. 



48 



October: Plan NH design team spent two days talking with residents, property 
owners and volunteers about ideas for the park and surrounding streetscape. Ten 
volunteers "gutted" the interior of the park building. 

November: Electrical service was restored to park building. Fourteen local 
businesses partnered with Main Street to sell the Ossipee Heritage ornament 
throughout the holiday season. Design Committee began to develop facade 
improvement program. 

December: The Ossipee Garden Club, Carroll County Cooperative Extension 
Service and UNH Forestry Service partnered with Main Street to decorate the target 
area properties for the holidays. With the gracious assistance of the Mountainview 
Station Restaurant, OCC, and the hiighway Department, a Christmas tree returned 
to the "square". We applied for and received a technical assistance grant to develop 
a way finding and signage plan for all of Ossipee. The year ended with the Main 
Street Program and the Town receiving the final report of recommendations from the 
Plan NH held in October. Copies are available to the public at the Town Hall, library 
and Main Street Office. 

Throughout this past year, the enthusiasm and support for the efforts of the 
Ossipee Main Street grew considerably. Every event or project elicited new 
volunteers who came forward and offered to help with a specific project or 
volunteer a special talent or skill. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank them 
as well as the Town of Ossipee and each of our supporters for all our success. 
Without all of you, our work would not be possible. Should you want to volunteer 
or have a suggestion for the program, please contact us at 539-7200. Or visit our 
website, www.ossipeemainstreet.org to learn more about the program and when 
committees meet. 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Ossipee Main Street Board of Directors, 

Sarah Millette 
Executive Director

OSSIPEE POLICE DEPARTMENT 
Annual report 2007 

2007 was a busy and productive year for this department. With a full roster 
and no turnover, we are for the first time providing 24 hour patrol the vast majority 
of the time. This has allowed us to much more quickly respond to emergencies in 
the middle of the night compared to when someone was on standby. 

We continue to be actively involved as much as possible with the youth of 
our community. We host a club in the after school program, continue to co-sponsor 
the fishing derby, hold bike safety programs etc. I believe strongly that interacting 
with the youth in these ways will pay dividends in the future. 

There continue to be numerous complaints regarding speed etc. on Town 
roads, and I fully agree that there needs to be more time spent on this enforcement. 
However, as our investigations have increased and the requirements for case 
presentations have become more complex we have been able to spend less and less 
time on patrol year after year. This can not continue. I have asked for and you will 
have the opportunity to vote at Town Meeting to hire an additional officer. It is our 
intention that if approved this officer will be used primarily for motor vehicle 
enforcement on Town roads. He/her will be on a varying schedule to correspond 
with and to address current complaints. I have further asked for funding to purchase 
a traffic analyzing device which will allow us to measure vehicle speed by time of 
day and day of week on any road which will allow us to steer the enforcement to 
the areas at the appropriate time to have an impact on it. 

We have for years done more with less. If you check, you will find that 
other Carroll County Towns doing similar activity have several more officers than 
Ossipee. This department will continue to do the very best job that we can with the 
resources you provide. 

We continue to be actively involved with the Carroll County Drug Task 
force, with Sgt. Eldridge serving as vice commander. 

I wish to thank the other agencies around us for their assistance throughout 
the year, and in particular the Carroll County Sheriffs Department under Sheriff Scott 
Carr and Capt. John Hebert. They will be sorely missed by this County as they head 
into retirement. Thank you to the fire departments and Medstar ambulance for their 
help at the many emergency scenes, and to the staff at Town Hall and to the many 
residents who support us throughout the year with their kind words and deeds. 

Respectfully submitted 
Richard H. Morgan, Chief

MEDSTAR EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES, INC. 
Activities Report, 2007 

Each year seems to present new challenges to the emergency services. First 
responders face new threats each day as they provide their services. Increased risk 
of disease contraction by patient contact, dangers posed from increases in violent 
behavior, and new dangers posed by their work around sophisticated safety systems 
in automobiles, are but a few of the risks they run each day. Over the past few years 
we have seen a dramatic decrease in the number of people willing to accept such 
risks. This too complicates an already difficult responsibility. Those who continue in 
these critical roles are to be commended. Those of us in the role of department 
heads also face the very difficult task of managing our budgets. Major increases in 
the cost of fuel, insurance, and supplies are making the provision of service in a cost 
effective manner, nearly impossible. All of these factors are challenges we must 
meet for sometime to come. 

I would like to again thank the people of Ossipee for their continued support. 
We are proud to serve your community. A special thank you to The Board of 
Selectmen, The West Ossipee Fire & Rescue Department, Center Ossipee Fire & 
Rescue, Ossipee Corner Fire & Rescue, and The Ossipee Highway Department, it is 
a pleasure to work with each of them. I commend them all for their dedication to 
your community. 

2007 again proved busy for Medstar with 1726 responses in our 6 town 
coverage area, along with 37 mutual aid calls to other towns, for a total of 1763 
emergency calls.

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE COUNCILOR 

It is a pleasure to serve this large northern district of 98 towns, 4 cities, and 5 
counties with a population of 247,000 people. The Executive Council is at the top 
of your Executive Branch of NH State Government. The Governor and Executive 
Council appoint 352 Commissions and Directors who administer NH law and 
budget as prescribed by the NH House and Senate. 

2008 is the year to keep an eye on and follow the progress of the NH 
Transportation Plan. The recommended projects in the highway and bridge plan can 
be accomplished with existing revenue from the state gasoline tax, bonds and 
matching federal funds. The Executive Council held public hearings on the projects 
throughout the state and forwarded their recommendations to Governor Lynch. 
Governor Lynch will review our recommendations and then submit his 
recommended plan to the NH House and Senate by January 15th, 2008. Without 
any new revenues for additional projects we will be lucky to maintain the existing 
state highway and bridge system. If more work is desired then new revenues will 
have to be voted by the Members of the House and Senate and signed by the 
Governor. Contact your local legislators-House and Senate. Find them by going to 
www.nh.g ov. 

This large northern district needs more people on state mandated volunteer 
boards and commissions. Send your letter of interest and resume to my office, or to 
Kathy Goode, Director of Appointments/Liaison to the Council, Governor's Office, 
State House, 107 North Main Street, Concord, NH 03301. Tel. (603) 271-2121. To 
find out what openings are available and to see a list of boards, visit the NH 
Secretary of State website at www.sos.nh.gov/redbook/index/htm . 

I have available from my office informational items about the NH Executive 
Council, NH Constitution, NH Tourist Map, 2007 Consumer Handbook, and 
District Maps. If you would like to receive my Monday morning report by e-mail 
please send an e-mail address to rburton@nh.g ov. 

It is an honor to continue to serve you now in my 30 years as a public servant. 
Contact my office anytime about your ideas, concerns and problems with state 
government. I respond to all inquiries and challenges. 



Sincerely Yours, 

Raymond S, Burton 

Executive Councilor

AN UPDATE FROM WASHINGTON 
BY CONGRESSWOMAN CAROL SHEA-PORTER 

Last year, the House of Representatives passed many important measures 
that affect our lives here in New Hampshire. From lowering the cost of student 
loans, to raising the minimum wage, to protecting middle-class families from the 
Alternative Minimum Tax, Congress addressed a wide range of issues that will 
benefit New Hampshire families. 

To help families afford the rising costs of higher education, we passed the 
College Cost Reduction and Access Act, which will cut interest rates in half for 
federal student loans, and save a typical student in New Hampshire $4,430 over the 
life of a loan. The bill will also increase funding for Pell Grants for low-income 
students and provide loan-forgiveness for talented students who pursue public 
service fields like teaching or emergency response. 

Congress passed legislation to protect 23 million families from a tax 
increase of up to several thousand dollars this year under the Alternative Minimum 
Tax. In July, we raised the federal minimum wage, increasing it from $5.1 5 to $7.25 
an hour by 2009. At the same time, Congress also passed tax credits for small 
businesses. To find out how businesses can take advantage of the new tax benefits, 
visit www.sba.gov or contact my office at (603) 641-9536. 

With energy prices rising. Congress increased the fuel efficiency standards 
for vehicles for the first time in thirty-two years. I'm also pleased that we passed an 
increase in funding for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), 
which supports New Hampshire's Fuel Assistance Program. If you or someone you 
know needs help affording the cost of heating fuel this year, please contact the New 
Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning at (603) 271 -831 7. 

It was a busy year in my New Hampshire offices in Manchester and Dover 
as well, where we assisted over 1,200 individuals with inquiries to federal agencies 
including the passport office, Social Security, Medicare, and the VA. To apply for a 
passport, visit travel.state.gov and follow the online instructions, or see the 
Frequently Asked Questions section of my website. 

Representatives from my office regularly visit towns across the First District 
to assist constituents in working with the federal government. For more information 
about the services that my office provides, please visit: www.shea-porter.house.gov. 

To keep up to date on the latest developments in Washington, you can also 
track legislation using the Thomas search engine provided by the Library of Congress 
at www.thomas.gov. 

I am honored to serve you in Congress, and I wish you a happy and 
prosperous year in 2008. 

Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter represents the First Congressional 
District of New Hampshire, which includes communities from Manchester to the 
Seacoast and through the Lakes Region up to Conway. Her Manchester and Dover 
District Offices can be reached by calling (603) 641-9536.

TRI-COUNTY 
COMMUNITY ACTION 



To the SELECTMEN and RESIDENTS of the TOWN of OSSIPEE 

The Tri-County Community Action/Carroll County is a private, non-profit 
agency that was established in 1965. The Carroll County Resource Center is located 
at 448 White Mountain Highway, Tamworth, NH. We have been contacted 2605 
times by Ossipee's citizens, processed 631 Fuel Applications and/or Electric 
Assistance, with 72 elderly, 93 disabled and linked 1809 with other programs. 

TRI-COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION HAS SPENT $322,421.00 ON 
OSSIPEE'S CITIZENS BETWEEN JULY 1, 2006 AND JUNE 30, 2007. 

Tri-County Community Action is dependent upon funding from your town 
and neighboring communities countywide to provide necessary services for the less 
fortunate citizens in our communities. The local funds are used to make available 
local intake and support for federal and state programs including Fuel Assistance, 
Electric Assistance, Homeless Prevention, Weatherization, electric utility 
conservation programs and the distribution of USDA Surplus Food to 13 Food 
Pantries and five dinner bells and a nursing home throughout Carroll County. 

We greatly appreciate the support and look forward to continued 
cooperation and partnership with your town's residents, elected officials and staff. 

Carroll County Community Contact has successfully partnered with 
individuals and families to assist them to identify barriers blocking the way to self- 
sufficiency.

OSSIPEE HISTORICAL SOCIETY 
Annual Report - 2007 

In 2007, the Historical Society not only held programs open to the public from 
April through September, but also had several special celebrations. We celebrated 
Old Home Week with a Vintage Fashion Show on July 1st. Clothing styles from the 
past were modeled by Society members. On July 25th, Natalie Peterson presented 
the results of her research on the Frederick Small murder trial, the first major trial to 
be held in the 1916 Courthouse. On August 5th, we celebrated the 90th anniversary 
of the historic Carroll County Courthouse with the Honorable Robert Lynn, Chief 
Justice of the NH Superior Court, as featured speaker. An added attraction at this 
celebration was a presentation by Alan Frazier Houston entitled "Keep Up Good 
Courage," a story of the NH 14th Volunteer Regiment during the Civil War. 

Our regular programs featured Mary Spencer, who showed us how a Colonial 
lady dressed for the day. Robert Gillette outlined the plans to preserve the Whittier 
Covered Bridge in West Ossipee. Maryjane Pettengill presented the results of her 
research on the Pauper Cemetery. Jacqueline and Dudley Laufman entertained us 
with traditional reels, jigs and contra-dance music. Brad and Dawn Marion gave a 
fascinating talk about local artist Allie Welch and displayed many of his works, 
which were generously loaned by area residents. Kim White Feather and Frank 
Black Wing showed a treasure of Native American artifacts and discussed the local 
tribal traditions. The programs were all well attended and appreciated by the 
audience. 

Grant Hall was open during Old Home Week and by appointment during the 
rest of the summer. Thanks to our dedicated volunteer docents, we were able to 
open the Courthouse on a regular schedule, Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and 
Sunday mornings. The annual service at the Early Settlers Meeting House was held 
on Sunday, August 19th. 

A highlight of the year was the "Adventures in Ossipee" program for the school 
children, conducted by Arietta Paul with much assistance from Rachel Ward. 
Attorney John Kalled spent one afternoon educating the group on the ins and outs 
of the legal system, and we were delighted to watch as the students conducted the 
mock trial of a horse thief on October 25th. Alas, the accused was found guilty! 
Other notable programs for the children included a visit to Mary Spencer's antique 
kitchen, and a walking tour of the Route 1 6B area, one of the oldest parts of Center 
Ossipee. Jim Tulley fashioned replicas of several historic buildings and presented 
them to the students as an end of term gift. 

We succeeded in raising over $100,000 to revitalize the historic Courthouse, 
and the capital campaign committee continues to work to add to that amount. A list 
of repair priorities was completed with roof repair coming in at number one. A 
contract was awarded late in 2007, and work will begin as soon as weather permits. 



57 



We identified ceiling repair as the next must-do item, followed by installation of a 
security system and renovation of the front-lobby. 

As we begin our 85th year, the Ossipee Historical Society is moving forward in 
ways those who founded it in 1923 could not have imagined. We invite all those 
who are interested in preserving the past to join us in ensuring that the stories and 
artifacts of our history are not lost, but are passed along to future generations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Carol Puffer, President 

Ossipee Historical Society

OSSIPEE PLANNING BOARD 
2007 Annual Report 

The Planning Board meets regularly on the first and third Tuesdays of each 
month at 7 PM at the OssipeeTown Hall. Additional work sessions are held on the 
fourth Tuesday of the month as needed to work on changes to the Ossipee Zoning 
Ordinance and other Planning Board business. 

In 2007 the Planning Board approved 6 Subdivisions for a total of 19 lots, 
5 Site Plan Reviews, 5 Mergers of lots, and 4 Boundary Line Adjustments. 

Five Excavation Permits were renewed, and three temporary permits were 
granted. One pit was declared reclaimed to the degree possible and closed. A lot of 
time was devoted to increasing gravel pit compliance with the Ossipee Earth 
Excavation Regulations and RSA 1 55E. H.E.Bergeron, an engineering firm, was used 
to determine restoration needed and evaluate restoration plans. In several cases 
legal actions were necessary; some are ongoing. 

The Ossipee Planning Board recommends that applicants meet with Dave 
Senecal, our Zoning Enforcement Officer, before applying to the Planning Board to 
help ensure compliance with all zoning issues. The applicant receives a checklist in 
the application packet to prepare for the hearing. The Planning Board encourages a 
pre-application discussion with the board that can be scheduled for any Planning 
Board meeting following the noticed hearings. 

We welcome and encourage any interested people to attend our meetings, 
as input from the townspeople helps determine the direction of the Planning Board. 
The Board has dealt with many difficult issues this year. We are looking for people 
to serve as alternates. It is a really good way to learn about the work of the Planning 
Board in your town and make your voice heard in the community. 

The Planning Board has spent many hours increasing consistency and 
making some changes in documents, primarily the Site Plan Review check lists, 
application, and regulations and the Zoning Ordinance. Much attention has been 
given to improving and elaborating on the present Site Plan Review Regulations. 
Public concern about two important changes to the Zoning Ordinance resulted in 
the Board voting not to present them to the voters. 

Ossipee has employed the services of a circuit rider from Lakes Region 
Planning Commission for several months. The planner attends one meeting a month 
and reviews all applications for the Board. After passage of the Capital Improvement 
warrant article last year, the Planning Board has had some difficulty forming a 
committee. Lakes Region Planning Commission has agreed to deal with the more 
technical aspects of developing a Capital Improvement Program.

ZONING ENFORCEMENT OFFICER 

This year was a busy one again. Projects were varied, from decks, sheds, 
single and multi-family homes, hangers, etc. 

The new Permit fees brought in $23,090.85 to the General Fund to be used 
to offset taxes. 

Besides doing varied inspections during construction, I also attended all 
Planning and Zoning Board meetings. Once a month ! attend New Hampshire 
Building Official meetings. During the year I also attended New Hampshire Health 
Officer's meetings. These meetings keep me up to date on regulations.

OSSIPEE ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT 2007 

Members of the Board are Jean Simpson, Chairman; Stanley Brothers, Vice 
Chairman, David Babson, Ann Johnson, and Bruce Parsons. Alternates are Lisa 
Hinckley and Mark McConkey. 

Public hearings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 
p.m. Several meetings were cancelled this year, due to the lack of cases to be heard. 
Eleven Variances were granted this year. Many of these were applications to make 
changes in homes that do not meet the setbacks from the property lines, according 
to the present Zoning Ordinance. Four Special Exceptions were granted: one was to 
allow a non-permitted use and the rest were to replace a building with a less non- 
conforming one. One case was denied. 

If the applicant is denied a building permit because of the need for a 
Variance or a Special Exception, Dave Senecal, the Zoning Enforcement Officer, 
issues a denial and instructs the applicant to apply to the Ossipee Zoning Board. The 
Zoning Enforcement Officer attends all of the Zoning Board meetings. He makes 
sure that all the conditions placed on a decision by the ZBA are satisfied, before he 
grants a building permit. Several cases were referred to the ZEO for his inspection 
and follow-up. The Zoning Board of Adjustment has worked closely with the Zoning 
Enforcement Officer to ensure that possible violations of the conditions of a decision 
are reviewed. 

Prior to the ZBA hearing the case, a fee must be paid for public notification 
and certified mailing to all abutters, as well as a hearing fee of $75.00. The secretary 
compiles the information and sends it to the Board members before the hearing. 
Board members often make a visit to the site, so they will have a better 
understanding of the case. An official procedure is followed for conducting the case. 
At the conclusion of the case, the ZBA members do a role call vote. The results are 
publicized in a public notice as to whether the application was granted or denied. 
Any conditions of approval or reasons for denial are included. The applicant must 
wait 30 days, so that anyone dissatisfied with the decision has a chance to start the 
appeal process. 

Applicants would hasten the process by being sure they have included all 
the information requested in the application packet. The ZBA adopted a checklist for 
the applicant that must be completed before submitting the application, and signed 
by the ZEO or the secretary indicating that it is complete, 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jean Marie Simpson

LAKES REGION PLANNING COMMISSION 

The Lakes Region continues to grow and evolve. Homes and businesses have 
expanded along major roadways, and many of our communities have experienced 
dramatic changes. This growth has resulted in a number of regional challenges. The 
Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) is an organization established to provide 
area communities with the capability to respond to and shape the pressures of 
growth in a purposeful way. With a service area covering over 1,200 square miles 
in Belknap, Carroll, Grafton and Merrimack Counties, the LRPC provides a wide 
range of planning services to member municipalities. The Commission offers direct 
and support services including technical assistance, geographic information 
systems, transportation planning, land use, environmental planning, hazard 
planning and economic development. Local, state, and federal resources primarily 
fund the LRPC. We are contacted several times daily for answers to local and 
statewide issues. We also maintain a regular dialogue with state agencies as a 
resource for the entire Lakes Region. Our goal remains to provide support, 
knowledge, and leadership to the governments, businesses, and citizens of the 
Lakes Region. 

Listed below are some of the services performed on behalf of the Town of Ossipee 
and the region in the past fiscal year: 

• Completed and distributed the 2007 Development Activity in the Lakes Region 
report on the Lakes Region residential and commercial development trends. 
Prepared and distributed a new development survey for 2007-2008. 

• Planned and coordinated the 21st annual household hazardous waste collection 
in the Lakes Region. Two consecutive Saturdays were designated as collection days 
for 24 participating communities. An estimated 20,000 total gallons of waste were 
collected, containerized, and transported to EPA approved end-of-life locations 
around the country. 

• In cooperation with area communities, developed an update of the top regional 
transportation priorities and submitted it to the NHDOT as required by state statute. 
Continuously to advocate for needed projects. 

• Convened several meetings of the LRPC Transportation Technical Advisory 
Committee (TAC) to enhance local involvement in transportation planning and 
project development. The TAC advises the LRPC on transportation projects of 
regional significance. 

• In cooperation with the NH Local Government Center, hosted and organized 
three public Municipal Law Lectures where practicing attorneys provide a legal 
perspective on local planning, zoning and other municipal issues. Recent lectures 
included: Procedural Basics for Planning and Zoning Boards; Environmental 
Permitting: The Role of Local Officials; and Road Access and the Municipal 
Planning Process. 

• Secured funding from the NH Homeland Security and Emergency Management 
(HSEM) to assist local communities with the preparation of all hazard management 
plans. 

• Awarded $50,000 from the U.S Economic Development Administration to prepare 
a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the Lakes Region. A 
completed CEDS will provide communities with improved access to EDA funding 
for infrastructure and economic development projects, a benefit not currently 
available. 



62 



• Conducted over 160 traffic counts around the region, in cooperation with the 
New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT). LRPC is also preparing and 
updating local road inventories, on a town-by-town basis, that will be used by the 
DOT 

• Convened six Commission meetings, which featured a diverse range of topics 
ranging from: a Legislative Night which featured a broad array of proposed 
legislation, including implementation of a new woodland buffer provisions in 
shoreland areas, expanding job creation incentives in the LRPC area, swim lines in 
public waters, and promoting agritourism; presentations on climate challenges 
including global warming and the effects on NH resources and economy as well as 
opportunities presented by climate change; an update of LRPC's Regional Goals and 
Objectives which was accomplished with discussions and recommendations over 
the four area meetings and adoption in September of this year; an amendment to the 
Standing Rules and Procedures for the LRPC Transportation Advisory Committee; 
and an opportunity to exchange viewpoints and make recommendations for 
amendments to the Comprehensive Shoreland Protection Act (CSPA). 

• Continue to represent the region on several boards and committees related to the 
economic and environmental well-being of the region, e.g., the Belknap County 
Economic Development Council, the Grafton County Economic Development 
Council, the Pemigewasset River Local Advisory Committee, etc. 

• Reviewed project proposals through the NH Intergovernmental Review 
Agreement that provides the region and local communities an opportunity to 
respond to applications seeking state and federal aid. LRPC reviewed many 
proposals having a combined investment total greater than $131 million in the 
Lakes Region.

MT. WASHINGTON VALLEY ECONOMIC COUNCIL 
2007 Town of Ossipee Report 

The Tech Village in Conway has now been bustling with activity for over a 
year. The facility houses many valley services and start-up businesses as well as an 
outstanding educational venue utilized by Granite State College, Plymouth State 
University and NH Community Technical College. Attractive building space on 
adjacent property is now available to interested technical businesses and services. 
The following are a few of the highlights of the 2007 year: 

MWV Economic Council is dedicated to helping area businesses and 
promoting economic diversity for the valley. Such career opportunities for area 
youth can assist University System Chancellor Reno's initiative to retain more NH 
graduates in New Hampshire. 

Local technology and business skills training: The new Learning Center, at 
the Tech Village provides access to quality education right here in the valley. 

Access to SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) counselors is 
available in the Tech Village. They provide free and confidential small business 
advice to entrepreneurs. 

The E-Peaks Technology Group offers those employed or interested in the 
growing technology field in the North Country an opportunity to network with 
others, find jobs, find employees and discuss issues relevant to technological growth 
in the valley. 

The Council's Revolving Loan Fund is the preferred alternative leader in 
financial assistance for small businesses in the region. To date, the Council has 
made 26 loans to local businesses totaling nearly $2.6 million. 

Business to Career services and coordination are housed in the Tech 
Village as both an educational tool and as a resource to area students and 
businesses. 

Tech Businesses are flourishing in the Tech Village as they network with 
one another and share critical services provided by the Economic Council. 

Ongoing educational and informational forums are also provided by the 
Council to aid area business and bring expertise to the valley that otherwise might 
not be available in the local area. 

Watch for continued growth and development in the Economic Council's 
Tech Village. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Donna Sargent, Ossipee Representative

OSSIPEE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 
Annual Report for 2007 

The Ossipee Conservation Commission meets the second Wednesday of 
the month at 7 PM in the Ossipee Town Hall. The public is welcome and 
encouraged to attend. Commissioners are appointed by the Selectmen to assure 
protection and proper utilization of Ossipee natural resources under RSA 36-A. 
Elizabeth Gillette was elected Chair and Warren Walker as Vice-Chair. Other 
members are Ralph Buchanan, Andy Northrop, Jean Hansen and Bob Pratt. 

Throughout 2007 the Commission worked to complete the Window on the 
Ossipee Mountains conservation project authorized by the Selectmen in January to 
buy 26.6 acres on Route 16 to safeguard the view of the Ossipees, the underlying 
aquifer, and the site's early successional forest wildlife habitat and wetlands. A 
scenic overlook and nature trail are planned. Letters in support of the "Window" 
project were filed in April with the NH Department of Transportation from: Ossipee 
Selectmen, Ossipee Planning Board, Ossipee Zoning Board of Adjustment, Town of 
Ossipee Police Department, Ossipee Main Street Program, Ossipee Concerned 
Citizens, Ossipee Area Boy Scouts Unit Commissioner, Greater Ossipee Area 
Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Ossipee Valley, Carroll County 
Commissioners, Lakes Region Planning Commission, Mt. Washington Valley 
Economic Council, Carroll County Extension Forester, New England Forestry 
Foundation, Green Mountain Conservation Group, Dan Hole Pond Watershed Trust, 
Jeffrey H. Taylor & Associates, Inc., Senator John Sununu, Senator Judd Gregg, 
Representative Carol Shea-Porter, NH Rep. District 3 Harry Merrow, NH Rep. 
District 3 Howard N. Cunningham, NH Rep. District 3 Virginia Heard, NH State 
Senate District 3 Joseph D. Kenney, NH Rep. District 1 Thomas L. Buco, NH Rep. 
District 1 Ed Butler, NH Executive Councilor Raymond S. Burton, The Nature 
Conservancy, and Department of Earth Sciences, Dartmouth College. It is 
anticipated that the property will be purchased by April 2008 as a result of the 
donations received from over 200 generous individuals, businesses, associations, 
land trusts, grants, and Ossipee Conservation Commission funds committed for the 
project. No money raised through taxation is to be used for the purchase. 

The Commission actively worked to protect Ossipee water quality by 
partnering with the Green Mountain Conservation Group to sample 13 sites for 
contaminants or change in purity. The Commission also supported the Lake Host 
Program (under the NH Lakes Association) to check boats entering and leaving 
Ossipee Lake for milfoil and other invasive species that can cripple communities 
whose economies depend on water-based tourism. Overseen in 2007 by 
Commissioners Jean Hansen and Warren Walker, Point Person Nick Paquette 
supervised a team of three during 1 3 weeks from June through August that provided 
over 500 hours of ramp coverage at the Pequawket Trail boat landing with 637 
courtesy boat inspections. Fortunately, the samples they removed from boats 
proved to be non-invasive. The Program educates boaters on how to recognize 
invasive plants and also helps to protect the lake. 



66 



Under the forest management plan adopted in 2006 for land under 
Commission purview, timber cutting and thinning took place in late winter on the 
Sumner Brook site and in the fall on the Depot Road property in Tamworth. The Fish 
Hatchery rental contract with the present tenant was extended to March 2010. Tree 
Farm signs were posted on four properties comprising 291 acres, and our Tree Farm 
certification was extended to 2013. The Commission also assisted the Selectmen in 
getting a forest management plan completed, with planned timber harvests, on the 
Town property "Camp David" off Elm Street. 

In April the Commission co-sponsored the Drinking Water Protection 
Conference with the Green Mountain Conservation Group. A July evening program 
for the public featured geologist Robert Newton of Smith College on the "Fire and 
Ice" story of the Ossipee Mountains geologic history. The Commission co- 
sponsored this event with the Ossipee Lake Alliance. "FHow to" plans for building 
wood duck houses near water were offered to the public through local newspapers 
to increase populations of this species. 

The Commission reviewed 67 communications to and from the 
Department of Environmental Services, such as individual applications to work in 
the shoreland protection zone or wetlands or other area that would require a DES 
permit or monitoring. The Commission also noted 25 Intents to Cut forwarded by 
the Selectmen. In addition, the Commission performed 1 1 site visits to review 
possible impact on Ossipee land and water natural resources based on applications 
before the Ossipee Planning Board or proposals by the NFH Fish & Game. 
Commissioners attended 1 1 general meetings and conferences to become more 
knowledgeable on issues affecting their responsibilities. These included among 
others: Landscaping at the Waters' Edge, Land and Conservation Estate Planning, 
New FHampshire Association of Conservation Commissions annual meeting. Lakes 
Management Advisory Board, CIS & Wildlife Action Plan, etc. 

The Commission notes that at the close of 2007, Ossipee had some 18 
percent of land area permanently protected compared to the 25 percent 
recommended by the Society for the Protection of NFH Forests in order to protect 
essential ecosystems, wildlife habitat, working landscapes and quality of life. Many 
will be interested in two recently produced guides that are designed to help the 
municipality sustain the wellbeing of our natural land and water resources while 
planning proactively for economic growth: The NFH Wildlife Action Plan and the 
Ossipee Watershed Natural Resources Guide. You can go online to find these 
resources or get more information by contacting the Ossipee Conservation 
Commission.

Elizabeth Gillette, Chair

outstanding support of our community. Volunteers from non profit organizations, 
civic groups, individuals, neighborhoods and all the town departments worked 
together to ensure that success. 

All of the money that supports Old Home Week activities comes from 
donations: no tax dollars are used for the events. Despite the increasing expenses 
we have continued to meet our goals and stand by our pledge to not request tax 
dollars to support our committee. The Committee wishes to thank all who have 
donated their time and support. We are an all volunteer group that meets year round

Green Auction, Easter Egg Hunt, Mother and Father's Day gifts for the residents of 
Mountain View Nursing Home and Sunset Place. New to the schedule this year was 
Flamingo placement. This new event had residents on their lawns harvesting the 
Flocks!

27 and the week completes July 6th. Remember to mark your calendar to make sure 
you attend the awesome events planned for your enjoyment! 

The Old Home Week Committee would like to extend a welcome to new

pride extends further. The meetings take place in the Town Library on Wednesday

We partnered with the New Hampshire Foundation for Healthy 
Communities this year for 2 programs. The 1st was with their Healthy New 
Hampshire Curriculum promoting the 5-2-1-0 Healthy eating campaign. Our 
Summer Day Camp Program incorporated this and we are also using it in all of our 
other youth programs. The 2nd program is the C.A.T.C.H Kids Club. (C.A.TC.H.) is 
an acronym for Coordinated Approach to Child's Health. This is a grant funded 
program of which the Recreation Department and the OCS "School's Out" Program 
are a Pilot Program for this in this part of the State. We received $2200.00 worth of 
equipment and curriculum for free to implement this program. It includes a nutrition 
guide, an activity box with over 300 activities, and equipment to run all of the 
activities. We also have launched our own initiative called GET O.U.T! Our goal is 
to encourage all of you to simply GET OUT and participate in an activity. O.U.T. 
means: get Outside, Use your mind and resources, and Try something new. 

Do you have a lot of ink or laser jet cartridges to get rid of? Let us take care 
of that for you! We will take them and give them to a company in Fremont, NH. 
They give us $1.50 for each cartridge. So not only are your properly disposing of 
your cartridges, you are also helping out the Department and the environment! 

Our goal for the Department is to: "Offer a wide range of activities for all 
ages designed to meet the needs of the community, and to encourage healthy use of 
your leisure and recreation time." It does not matter what your age, there is always 
something for you to do. If you have an idea for a new program or activity, please 
call us at 539-1307 and we can discuss your idea and possibly include it into our 
schedule of programs and events. Many of the programs and events you see listed 
here are the result of a conversation that we have had with someone who had an 
idea for a new program. We are working hard to provide the best continuing and 
new programs we can for this community. 
We received 3 grant-funded programs in 2007: 

The 1st is called "Walk With Me!". This grant of $2000.00 was awarded 
through the Healthy New Hampshire (HNH) Foundation. We provided 100 
pedometers to families with children age 8 and younger along with a grude to 
encourage families to get out and walkl We also worked with the Walk NH Program 
out of the Governor's Office. 



70 



The 2nd is the "Summer Programs at Ossipee Recreation for Teens 

(S.P.O.R.T.). This grant of $7000.00 was awarded through the Carroll County 
Prevention Program Development Funds. This program provided a 6-week summer 
program for ages 12-16. We had 24 youths registered for this great Program. They 
completed community service, ran games and activities for the younger kids camp, 
went to water and amusement parks, canoe trips, and had a blast. We have applied 
for, and received, this grant again in the amount of $5000.00 for the smmner of 
2008. As a result. Assistant Director, Jason Hanken, has formed a Teen Leadership 
Team. This group of teens assists him in planning additional activities for teens. For 
more information on this, (and other activities), please contact Jason. 

The 3rd is the C.A.T.C.H. Kids Club. As mentioned previously, this was 
given in the form of equipment and curriculum in the amount of $2200.00. This is 
being utilized in many of our new and existing programs for youth. 

Beginning late in the year, a small group of people including members of 
the Ossipee Main Street Program, have been meeting to discuss the feasibility of a 
Skate Park in town. We have met with a few other agencies in the region and in 
Maine to discuss the challenges of such a project. We do not have a Warrant Article 
this year, but are working on one for 2009. We hope to have another Skate Park 
Demonstration here this Summer. 

We continue to search for alternative funding for programs and activities. 
We plan on applying for grants to obtain field hockey equipment and another NFHN 
Grant this year. 

The Town is responsible for the following Recreation Areas and Facilities: 
Swimming Area: Cleveland Beach (Town Beach on Duncan Lake), Boat Landing s: 
on Pequawket Trail, on Harpers Ferry Landing, on Ossipee Lake Drive, Nichols 
Road, Whittier Bridge Area, and White Pond, Parks. Ballfields. Hiking Trails & Tennis 
Courts: Constitution Park, Ballfields & Basketball Court: YMCA Field, Park: Mill 
Pond, Bearcamp Recreation Area (on Newman Drew Road), Other: Outdoor Ice 
Rink, Indoor Facilities: Town Hall Gym. 

The development and maintenance of Town recreation facilities is jointly 
monitored by myself, Dave Senecal (Zoning Enforcement Officer), and Brad 
Harriman (Public Works Director), and the Board of Selectmen. 

This past year work on the maintenance and development of the Town's 
Recreation Facilities continued with the following projects that were completed in 
2007: 

Water repellent application to the elevated walkway on the trails at 
Constitution P^rk (Spring & Fall), 

• Orgranic fertilization of the fields at Constitution Park, 

• Fertilization of the YMCA field, 

• Water repellent application to the decking at the Mill Pond,

72 



with the department. In addition, the Program Brochure is published on a quarterly 
basis (Spring: March - May, Summer: )une - August, Fall: September - November, 
and Winter: December - February) that serves as a handy resource for you to inquire 
about what is available through the department. 1300 - 1800 are produced each 
Quarter. The size and content of the brochure continues to expand as more 
programs and activities are added. We continue to participate in the NRPA 
(National Parks and Recreation Association) Program Brochure Exchange Program. 
Ossipee's brochure is sent out to over 600 recreation departments around the 
country, Canada, and Guam. In return, they send their brochures to us. It is a 
wonderful way to network and share ideas. 

The Ossipee Recreation Department maintains membership with the 
following organizations: 

• New FHampshire Recreation and Parks Association (NFHRPA), 

• Carroll County Recreation Director's Association (CCRDA), 

• New Hampshire Association of FHealth, Physical Education, Recreation, 
and Dance (NHAHPERD), 

• National Parks and Recreation Association (NRPA), 

• National Arbor Day Foundation, 

• New England Parks and Recreation Association (NEPRA), 

• United States Tennis Association (USTA), 

• National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS). 

Membership in these organizations provides valuable resources and input 
on a local, state, regional, and national level. The department is also actively 
involved in the organization of the Ossipee Old Home Week, the Ossipee Central 
School's "School's Out" After-School Program, The Ossipee Main Street Program, 
Carroll County Juvenile Justice Project, and other local activities and events. 

I currently serve on the Social, Awards, and Program Committees for New 
Hampshire Recreation & Parks Association (NHRPA). I am a Deputy Fire Chief/EMT- 
B/Fire Inspector for the Center Ossipee Fire & Rescue Department and am also a 
member of: Ossipee Old Home Week Committee, Ossipee Central School "School's 
Out" Advisory Board, and the Carroll County Juvenile Justice Project Planning 
Board, as well as an Instructor for the American Red Cross. Jason is also a member 
of NRPA, NHRPA, and the "School's Out" Advisory Board. He is also a certified 
instructor for the Coach Smart NH youth coach's curriculum. He is also the Web Site 
Coordinator for the New Hampshire Recreation and Park Association (NHRPA). We 
both participate in several local and regional conferences throughout the year with 
other Park & Recreation Professionals. Our participation in these conferences helps 
us gain further knowledge of leading edge programming which then enables us to 
give you the best opportunities we can for recreation in Ossipee. 

In May, 2007, at the Annual Banquet of the New Hampshire Recreation 
and Park Association (NHRPA) I was presented with the "Wink"Tapply Outstanding 
Professional Award for the State of New Hampshire. I was completely surprised by 
this. I am humbled to think that my colleagues around the State gave this honor to 
me. More importantly it speaks of the support and cooperation that you, the citizens 
of Ossipee, give this Department. 



73 



Even though we have 2 full-time staff, we still rely almost 100% on 
volunteers to make things happen here. A special THANK YOU! is extended to all 
coaches, referees, umpires, instructors, summer camp and lifeguard staff, and 
volunteers who generously share their time and expertise with all of the residents of 
Ossipee, young and old. This community has a great community and volunteer 
spirit! 

This volunteer effort greatly enhances the quality of the activities and 
programs. Without your help, guidance, and support, the department could not 
accomplish what it does. We want to also show our deep appreciation to all of the 
businesses, civic groups, non-profit groups, individuals, the staff at the Ossipee 
Central and Effingham Schools, and the other Town of Ossipee Departments for 
their support of the Recreation Department. Through your financial contributions, 
sponsorships, and your individual efforts, many residents of the town (young and 
old) have been able to participate in department activities. Thanks also to: Peter 
OIkkola and Laurence Brownell for keeping the ball fields and the Mill Pond Park 
looking sharp; to Fred Loud and Billy Eldridge and the Highway Department for 
keeping the ice Rink free of snow; to Jordan O'Neill and his parents for keeping the 
ice Rink in excellent skating condition this season; and to Ken and the Water 
Department for their assistance in keeping the water flowing to keep the Ice Rink 
flooded. Thanks also to Sam Martin for all her hard work on the brochure. Special 
thanks to, Virginia Waugh, who folds all of my brochures! 




74 



Remember, Recreation is more than just sports! Recreation is what you do 
in your leisure time! What will you and your family do this year to recreate? Try 
something new and see the impact that it has for the good of you and your family. 
The programs the Department offers are not just for young people. The Department 
is here to serve all the residents of Ossipee. The Department office is located next 
to the Town Hall on Main Street, Center Ossipee. 

For a small town, we have a lot to offer. On behalf of Jason and I - it is a joy to serve 
as your Recreation Directors. 

Enjoy Life Recreate! The Benefits are Endless!

Peter Waugh - Recreation Director

OSSIPEE CONCERNED CITIZENS, INC. 

Annual Report for the year 2007 

To the Selechnen and Citizens of the Town of Ossipee, Ossipee Concerned 
Citizens, Inc. submits its Annual Report: 

Over the past few months the word "recession" has been used more and 
more to define the direction of the economy. Indicators suggest that we are already 
there, or on the slippery slope to it. Either way, residents in this part of New 
Hampshire can be more rapidly and fundamentally affected as the lack of 
confidence in the economy increases worldwide. The choice of where our money 
goes is based on self-preservation. Every dollar counts. 

So the question becomes, "What can I do to stretch my dollar?". Well, you 
can get a delicious noon-time meal (by donation) from Ossipee Crossings if you are 
sixty (60) years or older. If you have a young family and are income-eligible, you 
may easily become a WIC (women, infants and children nutrition education) 
Program participant and take advantage of free nutrition counseling, food and food 
vouchers by signing up today. If you need day care for your child or children, you 
may apply to Ossipee Crossings Child Care Center and begin today with 
participation based on a sliding fee scale (to as little as nothing). Ever heard of the 
Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)? If you are sixty (60) years or older 
and income eligible, or a WIC participant in a particular category, you may be 
eligible for a free monthly box of non-perishable food and a block of cheese 
(improved surplus food program) distributed on alternating dates in Conway and 
Center Ossipee. Finally, OCC is an officially recognized senior center (by the New 
Hampshire Association of Senior Centers), and offers a variety of free senior health 
and wellness, and social and recreational activities. They include the following: 
Footcare Clinics (in association with LRGH), hearing testing, blood-pressure clinics 
(with Wolfeboro VNA), Walking For Fitness, Senior Nutrition Counseling, TOPS 
(Linda Littlefield and Co.), Game Day, Bingo, Monday Night Whist, Winter Ball, 
Portland Flower Show, Saturday Morning Breakfast, Feather Finders (birdwatching), 
Volunteer Awards Picnic, Senior Picnic and Boat Ride, Fryeburg Fair, and monthly 
social and recreational trips. 

Ossipee Concerned Citizens, Inc. could not survive without fundraising 
activities which supplement our overall budget. Those 2007 events include the 
following: Public Turkey Suppers, Penny Sales, Spring Fling, Independence Day 
Celebration, Harvest Fair, Christmas Fair, limited catering, catalogue sales. Uptown 
Boutique, fudge sales, raffles, and the December community (to benefit the Santa 
Project). 

A new fundraiser - our OCC Membership Discount Card with over thirty 
(30) local businesses offering discounts to card holders. Cards are available 
(regardless of age) at OCC for an annual purchase price of ten (10) dollars. 



77 



The Community Santa Project assisted more families in 2007 than any past 
year. The support received by so many groups and individuals with their donations 
of food, funds and/or time made the Christmas holiday joyous for all the children of 
participating families. 

Ossipee Concerned Citizens, Inc. is a not-for-profit human services agency 
which provides all of the above programming with funds from federal, state, non- 
profit, and local sources. Those sources include the Bureau of Elderly and Adult 
Services, USDA, Lakes Region United Way, the Ossipee Children's fund, the 
Division of Family Services, and town support. 

Our purpose remains to improve the quality of resident life through 
increased opportunities made more accessible by a central location (Ossipee 
Crossings). Our Elderly Nutrition Program expanded to include Moultonboro and 
Sandwich with food prepared at the Moultonboro Lions Club on Monday through 
Thursday of each week. The WIC Program has a central office at OCC, and holds 
clinics at seven different sites across the county. The Ossipee Crossings Child Care 
Center is located in the Ossipee Crossings building which is central to most families 
who participate. Additionally, the Commodity Supplemental Food boxes are 
delivered in Conway and Ossipee on alternating months. If a participant has no 
transportation, then the boxes are delivered directly to the home. 

There is another source of support vital to the level of the success of OCC. 
Volunteerism. Volunteers magnify many-fold the output of our agency. We never 
take them for granted, and publicly thank them for their continued assistance. 

In closing, we take this OCC Annual Report opportunity to recognize the 
large-scale support of the citizens of the community who share their time and talent 
throughout the year. Thank you to town officials and office staff, town departments, 
the 20-member OCC Board of Directors, and to those individuals who have shared 
a significant part of themselves for the good of so many. Finally, to the staff of OCC 
- thank you for your hard work and loyalty which continues to lead OCC down the 
path of success. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Donna E. Sargent 

Executive Director, OCC

OSSIPEE WATER AND SEWER COMMISSION 

The Ossipee Water and Sewer Department, under the auspice of the Ossipee 
Water and Sewer Commission, has continued to make upgrades to both the Center 
Ossipee Water and Sewer System during the year of 2007. 

"Camp David" 

We are proud of the success accomplished by the Department in not only 
getting permitted by the State of New Hampshire, Department of Environmental 
Services, to install two additional lagoons but to complete the installation of same. 
Our Lagoons (4) are used for the "off loading" of sludge pumped from the private 
septic systems within the Town of Ossipee. Prior to the expansion of the lagoons we 
could only accept 480,000 gallons of sludge and the remaining gallons had to be 
trucked to Conway by private haulers at great expense to our residents. We now can 
accept 960,000 gallons per year and are able to keep "Camp David" operational 
twelve months a year. 

Currently we are in the process of improving two of our twenty-four leach beds 
that service our residential sewer system within Center Ossipee. The work is 50% 
completed and completion should be finalized by the end of April, weather 
permitting. 

WATER SYSTEM 

Currently our Center Ossipee Water system is in very good condition. All water 
tests have come back with an excellent test rating speaking highly of the quality of 
work and maintenance accomplished by our highly trained staff. 

The long awaited main line replacement on Route 1 6 was easily completed in 
the spring and came in under budget. A round of applause is given not only to the 
construction company (Virgin Construction), but to the Ossipee Police Department, 
Mr. Hewett of Wright Pierce Engineering, the Dept. of Transportation Highway 
Division, the abutters to the system who were extremely cooperative, and our able 
staff for accomplishing a smooth, timely installation under difficult conditions. 

To further improve the system the Ossipee Water and Sewer Commissioners are 
proceeding with a request (being presented at Town Meeting) for approval to apply 
once again to the State Revolving Fund, to borrow $480,000.00 to be used for 
replacement of the main line on Dore Street. This is about the oldest section of our 
line and presents a definite problem to the Fire Hydrant Systems (particles coming 
off lining of cast iron pipes clogging fire hoses). The Commission will draw 
$150,000.00 from undedicated reserve funds of the Water and Sewer Dept. The 
balance would come from the SRF on a 20 year loan. A rate increase will not be 
required to accomplish this task. 

The maps of the Center Ossipee Water System have all been updated to reflect the 
improvements made. All of the fire hydrants have been tested and flow rates taken. 



80 



All of the hydrants are scheduled to be color coded this spring to enable our Fire 
Departments, as well as the Mutual Aid units, to know what type of pressure/flow 
thcv can expect from each and every hydrant. 

At this point in time we want to once again extend our sincere appreciation to 
the various Town Departments for their continued help and support throughout the 
year 2007, the Board of Selectmen for repairing and replacing not only the roof but 
the wall that was in the process of collapsing at the office, Mrs. Martha Eldridge 
(Town Administrator) for her strong help in having things go smoothly, to Mrs. Kellie 
Skehan and her Tax Office Staff Ms. Trish Hodge and Ms. Tracy Cragin, for all their 
hard work in collecting the revenue for the Department and last but not least, the 
Town Office Staff, Ms. Natalie Hall, (Treasurer) and Ms. Gail Gliesman (payroll 
clerk). 

The cooperation of our very able body highway crew is not to be overlooked. 
Without their help the Ossipee Water and Sewer Department could not function. 

Respectfully submitted 

Randy Lyman, Chairman 

Elliott Harris, Vice Chairman 

June Loud, Clerk

OSSIPEE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT FOR 2007 

The year of 2007 was a very busy one for the Highway Department. The 
winter months seemed to pass by with no surprises. Then we hit the storm on April 
16th and 17th, which started out with 6 to 8 inches of snow, then turning to rain, 
dumping up to 9 inches of water on our streets. By that afternoon there were 28 
roads closed due to severe washouts. 

My hat goes off to the Highway Department, Stanley Eldridge 
Construction, Geoff Downing Construction, Jon Cyr Excavating, and the 24 privately 
owned dump trucks who worked long hours putting our roads back in shape. 

Other projects completed were replacing the wood deck on the Bean 
Mountain Bridge, scraping the rust off and priming the steel beams underneath the 
bridge, replacing the bridge on Valley Road along with installing new culverts and 
pavement. A strong effort was put into roadside mowing this year along with 
cleaning ditches and replacing approximately 40 culverts. The paved section of 
Ossipee Mountain Road was shimmed with new pavement, and the rest of Ossipee 
Mountain Road was widened and a new top dressing of crushed gravel installed. 
Blake Hill Road and Walker Hill Road both had the old pavement reclaimed. New 
drainage was installed along with new gravel and pavement. 

Annie Nichols Road was completed by Stanley Eldridge and then paved 
this year. 

Along with grading and treating the dirt roads with calcium chloride, we 
also tried rolling them with a vibratory roller this year with quite a bit of success. 

This fall, Fred Loud retired after 20 years of service for the Town of 
Ossipee. We all wish Fred the best in the future. The Town also welcomes Chris 
Ouellette and Scott Riley to the Highway Department. 

Sincerely, 

Brad Harriman 

Public Works Director

the call of duty as well as the dedicated hardworking members of the Department, 
the Precinct Fire Commissioners for their hard work, and the members of the 
precinct who continue to support the Center Ossipee Fire & Rescue Department.

FOREST FIREWARDEN'S 
ANNUAL REPORT -2007 

The 2007 Forest Fire Season started in January issuing Permits due to the 
lack of snow cover. After the April floods, the remainder of the year was typical. 
One of the thunderstorms that passed through in August sparked a woods fire 
behind the new Ossipee Woods Development that took several days of smoldering 
before it put up enough smoke to be detected. Access to this fire was by 4wd only 
and was quickly contained. 

Law brochures are available at the Town FHall. Further information on the 
laws can be found through the Department of Resources and Economic 
Development, Division of Forest and Lands at www.nhdfl.org . Please remember 
that if the ground is not completely covered with snow at least within a 100 foot 
radius around any brush pile to be burned, then a fire permit is needed. When in 
question call and ask. If you wish to burn without snow cover, please call the Fire 
Department in your Precinct. The Department numbers are listed below. Please 
only leave a message at one Department. These calls are returned by call fire/rescue 
personnel that are answering emergency calls on a daily basis, so it is recommended 
to call at least one day before the day that you wish to burn so there is adequate 
time for your call to be returned and for someone to issue the permit.

REPORT OF FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND STATE FOREST RANGER 

Your local Forest Fire Warden, Fire Department, and the State of New 
Hampshire Division of Forests & Lands work collaboratively to reduce the risk and 
frequency of wildland fires in New Hampshire. To help us assist you, please contact 
your local Forest Fire Warden or Fire Department to determine if a permit is required 
before doing ANY outside burning. Under State law (RSA 227-L:l 7) a fire permit is 
required for all outside burning unless the ground is completely covered with snow. 
The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services also prohibits the open 
burning of household waste. Citizens are encouraged to contact the local fire 
department or DES at 1-800-498-6868 or www.des.state.nh.us for more 
information. Safe open burning requires diligence and responsibility. Help us to 
protect New Hampshire's forest resources. For more information please contact the 
Division of Forests & Lands at (603) 271-2214, or online at www.nhdfl.org . 

Fire activity was very busy during the spring of 2007, particularly late April 
into early May. As the forests and fields greened up in later May the fire danger 
decreased. However, a very dry late summer created very high fire danger again 
from August into September, with fire danger reaching very high on Labor Day 
weekend. Even with the dry conditions, the acreage burned was less than half that 
of 2006. The largest forest fire during the 2007 season burned approximately 26 
acres on the side of Wantastiquet Mountain in Chesterfield during the month of May. 
Our statewide system of 16 fire lookout towers is credited with keeping most fires 
small and saving several structures this season due to their quick and accurate 
spotting capabilities. Many homes in New Hampshire are located in the wildland 
urban interface, which is the area where homes and flammable wildland fuels 
intermix. Several of the fires during the 2007 season threatened structures, a 
constant reminder that forest fires burn more then just trees. Homeowners should 
take measures to prevent a wildland fire from spreading to their home. Precautions 
include keeping your roof and gutters clear of leaves and pine needles, and 
maintaining adequate green space around your home free of flammable materials. 
Additional information and homeowner recommendations are available at 
www.firewise.org . Please help Smokey Bear, your local fire department and the 
state's Forest Rangers by being fire wise and fire safe!

OSSIPEE CORNER FIRE DEPARTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT - 2007 

With the closing of 2007, the Members of the Department responded to 
299 Emergency Calls. The members attended 46 Department Trainings and/or 
Meetings. The Department Roster currently stands at fifteen. 

As stated in last year's report, the Precinct has been looking for a piece of 
land that would be adequate to house a new Fire Station and to meet the needs for 
the Precinct both now and into the future. At the March Precinct Meeting voters 
approved the purchase of the piece of land located behind the YMCA Field. The 
Building Committee has been working hard on the beginning phases and will 
hopefully be looking at different building designs this year. 

The Department's "Detect For Life" smoke alarm campaign is still ongoing 
from last year. The Department received 1,800 smoke alarms and extra batteries 
from a grant to distribute. At this time we are out of smoke alarms, but still have 
batteries to give out. If you are a resident of the Town and need or question if you 
need new smoke alarms or batteries, or if you are not sure that you have enough 
smoke alarms, please call the fire department at 539-2407.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

As we approach another Presidential Election just nine short months from now, I am 
intrigued by the fact that while some of the candidates have thoroughly embraced the No 
Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), others have aggressively run from this bipartisan initiative. 
Having the advantage of sitting in the seat of a public school superintendent, I can understand 
and appreciate the seemingly diametric views that this piece of legislation has elicited from 
our politicians. 

It should be clear to everyone that neither Washington nor Concord has the ability 
to actually legislate positive changes in student achievement at either public or private learning 
institutions. What these two political entities can provide, however, is the critically important 
framework needed by local school districts to establish common learning standards as well as 
high expectations. Furthermore, their legislative work has long been needed in public 
education to establish a protocol for implementing transparent and understandable 
accountability in our public schools. Regardless of any legal mandates, real and significant 
positive change in student achievement will not occur unless the obligatory effort is made to 
improve at the local community level. While NCLB has failed to provide either the funding or 
increased level of local control promised by Washington, we must not forget that it has served 
as an effective catalyst for national educational reform. With the use of technology, schools are 
becoming more "data-driven" and the "art" of teaching is becoming much more scientific in 
approach. Instructional methods are, by necessity, evolutionary in nature and will continue to 
improve with technological advances. 

While the Governor Wentworth Regional School District continues to work at 
aligning its educational practices with its vision statement (''Helping each child create the 
future"), the issue of adequate and appropriate building space remains a concern. After 
seeking broad-based input from both the District's staff as well as the greater community at- 
large, the School Board is proposing to build a new grade 6 to 8 intermediate school on a site 
located off of Route 28 in North Wolfeboro. Next year, they will ask voters to approve the 
funding needed to renovate the Kingswood complex into solely a grades 9 to 12 facility (with 
an expanded Vocational Center). Facing the challenge of existing over-crowding at the 
Kingswood complex is not the only reason for the facilities plan. Most of the Kingswood 
complex, because of its age, is functionally out-dated and physically in need of refurbishing. 
The intermediate school is designed to be expanded if and when the District needs to do so. 
This plan provides the flexibility needed to meet the District's space needs for at least the next 
25 years. It is financially supported by the 55% State Building Aid available to the District and 
the length of the bond provides a "pay as you go" scenario distributing costs to an ever 
changing group of residents. 

Since the defeat of the bond in March of 2006, school construction costs have risen 
a little more than 17%. While commercial construction costs will continue to climb (due to 
increases in energy prices and growing worldwide competition for steel), interest rates remain 
at desirable levels. The School Board fears that further delays in addressing facility needs could 
be even more costly. 

Across the country, schools are placing greater emphasis on safety and security. This 
year, the Governor Wentworth Regional School District added AlertNow, a rapid 
communication service that allows thousands of parents to be simultaneously contacted. The 
development and continuous refinement of emergency response plans has shared the spotlight 
with instructional reform. 

It is an honor to work with so many qualified and highly motivated people in a 
community that cherishes and supports its schools. I look forward to completing the facilities 
plan that will put all of the towns in the Governor Wentworth Regional School District in a 
good position to appropriately educate its children for the foreseeable future and beyond. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John B. Robertson

that lowers property taxes. (Not recommended by Selectmen 0-2) (Majority vote
